consignment savings

Last week we twice visited the Kid's Closet consignment sale. It takes over an old Marshall's store and more than 600 families sell their items. Last year we learned our lesson about the long lines and I volunteered for a four-hour shift so we could shop first.

For just over $100, we got a wooden Jenny Lind highchair, cute summer overalls and sun suits, a few cloth diapers, books, blocks and this rocking horse that Daddy couldn't resist.

We went back on half-price day and got the rest of Henry's summer clothes and some fall items for less than $50. More than 20 outfits (including brands like Ralph Lauren, Gymboree etc) for the same price I paid for a two shorts and a shirt brand new. Clothes with any stains or extensive wear are not allowed to be sold so we know we're getting quality items.

The ABC blocks with little figures inside for each letter are my favorite. Henry, however, would have preferred I would have attended a Tupperware party.
